Disinfo: RIA FAN revealed West’s plan for the collapse of Russia by 2030

Summary

West does not want a strong and independent Russia. It has planned the collapse of Russia by splitting the society and dividing its regions by 2030, reveals a RIA FAN study. This will be similar to how the USSR was destroyed.

West is destabilizing Russia from the inside, artificially creating the reputation of an “aggressor”. It tries to convince Russians that their authorities are an enemy and uses the so-called opposition to promote pro-Western narratives in exchange for money.

The main goal of the West is the complete federalization of Russia with a final step of annexing the regions to other countries. North Ossetia will reunite with South and form a new state – Alania. China will annex some Russian eastern territories. Kamchatka, Chukotka will be occupied by the US, and Magadan Region, Sakhalin and the Kuril Islands to Japan. Kaliningrad region and Crimea will fall under the control of the European Union. The descendants of the Nazis who fled in 1945 will return to Kaliningrad, which will be renamed Koenigsberg. The Murmansk region will go to Norway, and Karelia will be given to Finland.

Disproof

No evidence given. This is a recurring pro-Kremin conspiracy theory about West's alleged plans against Russia and alleged involvement of the West in the USSR's collapse.

The article is also in line with a narrative that protests, in this case in Russia, are always financed by outside forces. It is an attempt to discredit and criminalise the peaceful protests against corruption. Similar cases can be found here.

The Istanbul Convention is a threat to the Armenian army

One of the most important institutions to preserve the Armenian people is our traditional Christian family. The ratification of the Istanbul Convention with many contradictory and dangerous provisions is a danger. It will disrupt the family-Christian values of the Armenian people. As a result, it is a threat to the Armenian Army’s combat readiness and national spirit. The convention is contradicting the current Constitution of the Republic of Armenia, to the centuries-old Christian and moral values of the Armenian people.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative on the Istanbul Convention. This message is consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the morally corrupt West and threatened traditional values.

The Istanbul Convention (the Convention on preventing and combating violence against women and domestic violence) is a treaty of the Council of Europe that opens the path for creating a legal framework at pan-European level to protect women against all forms of violence, and prevent, prosecute and eliminate violence against women and domestic violence.

The European Union has failed

The European Union has failed and liberalism is in crisis. Among the causes of this failure are globalisation and the negative reactions of society to multiculturalism and immigration.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative demonising the EU, claiming that the EU and EU elites have robbed European states of their sovereignty and are responsible for the impoverishment of European peoples, as well as that the EU is disintegrating.

No evidence given to support the claim that the EU has failed.

In the West, white male heterosexuals are increasingly treated as criminals by courts

In the Western world white male heterosexuals are branded as “exploiters” of everyone else: females, coloured people, homosexuals, new transgender species, Jews. White male heterosexuals cannot defend themselves against discrimination and are increasingly treated as criminals by courts. In the West, it is very difficult for a white male heterosexual to get a position in a university. In the UK and in European countries, university employment openings are restricted to women and coloured people.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about the threats to traditional values in the West, which is used to discredit liberal Western attitudes about a variety of normative issues, including the rights of women and of ethnic and religious minorities. This narrative is one of the most frequently used by pro-Kremlin outlets.

No evidence is provided to support the article’s claims. It is not true that in Western societies white heterosexual males are “discriminated against”,“treated as criminals”, and excluded from university teaching positions.
